Dhoop hai kabhi, kabhi hai chaanv zindagi: Twitter goes abuzz after Sonu Nigam announces he's quitting the social media platform

Sonu Nigam took to Twitter to announce that he is quitting the micro-blogging website and explained the reason behind it in 24 tweets

Sonu Nigam has come out in support of fellow singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya after the latter’s Twitter account was suspended after his derogatory tweets addressing JNU student leader Shehla Rashid. The singer said he was upset with the way Twitter’s guidelines were double-standard and asked why was Rashid’s Twitter account not suspended. As soon as Sonu tweeted about quitting the website, netizens came up with their opinion on the matter. While few felt that the decision was sensible others brought in their sense of humour.

“One could disagree with Abhijeet Da’s language but isn’t Shehla’s accusation that BJP has a sex racket, provocation enough to supporters? If his account is deleted, why not her? And the other morons who hurl… abuses to every achiever?” Sonu Nigam asked on Twitter.

The Abhi Mujhme Kahin singer’s action has made way for a new controversy. Last month, his post about azaan playing on loudspeaker had sparked another outrage. Sonu Nigam had complained on Twitter that playing azaan on the loudspeaker was an example of forced religiousness. After this Sonu’s stand was debated on quite a large scale, with some agreeing and others not.

But this time around, Sonu has jumped into a controversy that was not even remotely related to him. Abhijeet had sparked an outrage when he made derogatory remarks against Shehla Rashid. He had made those remarks after in support of Paresh Rawal’s statements on Arundhati Roy. Rawal had tweeted that the writer should be tied to an army jeep in Kashmir. With Paresh Rawal’s tweet a new national debate has kicked in.

Here are the reactions that Sonu Nigam’s Twitter garnered:
